Piya Chattopadhyay will be the new host of Sunday mornings on CBC Radio One, beginning in September.
CBC announced Monday that Chattopadhyay and the show’s team will develop a new format, maintaining the focus on in-depth interviews and documentary storytelling. The program will air on CBC Radio One and the CBC Listen app.
The new program will occupy the three-hour time slot that’s been known to listeners for the past 20 years as home to The Sunday Edition with host Michael Enright.
Two decades as reporter and host
Enright’s last day of hosting the show will be June 28. CBC announced last month that Enright is leaving The Sunday Edition to anchor a new, one-hour CBC Radio program that is in development.
Chattopadhyay has been in broadcasting for two decades as a reporter and host, for both radio and television, in Canada and abroad.
